Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye feels a keen sense of teamwork at the club has been one of the major strengths that helped them achieve a fifth-placed finish in the Barclays Premier League.

Along with the likes of strikers Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse and defender Fabricio Coloccini, Cabaye - who joined from Lille last summer - was certainly one of the Magpies' stand-out stars this season, although the France international says what has really benefited Newcastle's cause is their collective ethic.

"Finishing fifth was beyond the expectations of the club and fans," said Cabaye, quoted in the Newcastle Chronicle. "What makes us strong is that at no time a player has felt bigger than the team. We all worked for our team-mates."
